QLD SCRt CIWG | Chain of Responsibility (CoR) Best Practice | To Be Confirmed | Tuesday, 04. August 2020

SCRt CIWG | Chain of responsibility (CoR) Best Practice
Hosted by: To be confirmed

If you consign, pack, load or receive goods as part of your business, you could be held legally liable for breaches of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) even though you have no direct role in driving or operating a heavy vehicle.
In addition, corporate entities, directors, partners and managers are accountable for the actions of people under their control.
This is known as the ‘Chain of Responsibility’ (CoR).
On 1 October 2018, HVNL was amended to provide that every party in the heavy vehicle transport supply chain has a duty to ensure the safety of their transport activities.
In practical terms, this primary duty represents an obligation to eliminate or minimise potential harm or loss (risk) by doing all that is reasonably practicable to ensure safety.
As a party in the supply chain, the best way to do this is to have Safety Management Systems (SMS) and controls in place, such as business practices, training, procedures and review processes that:

identify, assess, evaluate, and control risk
manage compliance with speed, fatigue, mass, dimension, loading and vehicle standards requirements through identified best practice
involve regular reporting, including to executive officers
document or record actions taken to manage safety.

So, what have you done to address your CoR gaps?
Come along and share your progress in this important area of the supply chain!
